Long grain brown rice known also as natural rice from which only the outermost layer (husk) has been removed. It is not subjected to a polishing so that retains the properties of whole-grain rice hence the most valuable. Its light brown color is due to the presence of several layers of bran, rich in minerals and vitamins (especially B group), and fiber. It is a product with a low glycemic index (55 while for white rice, it is 70). Brown rice requires a longer cooking time compared to other types of rice (about 40 minutes). After cooking is characterized by a slightly nutty flavor. It is very slowly digested by the body giving the feeling of satiety for a long time.
Famously tastes both sweet ( with fruits, nuts and raisins) and spicy, with meat or vegetables.
